“I’m not even supposed to be here today!” This week’s film quiz centres on the movies of Kevin Smith and also covers topics including singers, sequels, and siblings.

Kevin Smith has never claimed to be one of the great filmmakers, but he’s built up quite a filmography as a director, a writer, and an occasional actor. And as Clerks III marks the end of a trilogy, (read my full review here) so this week’s quiz marks the life and work of our second-favourite actor-director called Kevin. You know the drill, it’s the weekend, so please enjoy 30 questions (“In a row?”) on subjects ranging from Smith films to non-Smith films.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Snootchie bootchies!
